Maths: Monday 15th June

In maths today, we are going to be looking at angles in shapes.  Using your knowledge of the number of degrees in a right angle from last week, have a go at the documents below.

English: Monday 15th June


Task 1: Go to the website, watch the video and have a go at the quiz below the video.
Task 1 for Snip Group: Use a dictionary to write a definition of each word, or use it in a sentence.

English task:  This week in English we are going to be looking at alternative story endings using the Oak Academy website.  This involves a teacher-led lesson using video and there are worksheets which link to the video.  You will need to pause and minimise the video at certain points to access the questions.  The teacher goes onto give the correct answers at the end of the video.  Throughout each of the videos it mentions a “WAGOLL”.  For your information, this just means “What a good one looks like” ie a model text!

Monday Task

In this lesson you will learn how to retrieve information from a setting description.
